Well, I'm a 20-something male who enjoys editing wikipedia. I live on the west coast of the United States and I enjoy editing a wide variety of articles. Articles that I most often edit are either paranormal, political biographies and/or business articles... but I sometimes edit random articles. I find that's a good way to find articles that other people may have overlooked. I also spend quite a bit of work at the anti-spam project.
I can sometimes be found on #Wikipedia and #Wikipedia-en as "J_smith". For technical reasons it won't let me use "J.smith".
To avoid any problems/confusion, I use the same name (j.smith) on meta, commons and wikiquote.

- computer support
- Amateur website developer (PHP, SQL)
- Amateur author
- Political enthusiast (nearly ran for public office once)
I sometimes use abbreviation in my edit summaries. Here's a list of what I use:
- "mv" - I moved something somewhere
- "rm" - removed something, usually described afterwards
- "rd" - redirected page somewhere, also usually described in edit sum.
- "+" - it means I added something to the article or discussion
- "rv" - I reverted something someone did.
- "rvv" - I reverted some vandalism.
- "woops" or "oops" - I goofed something and this edit is to fix it.
